About grinding almonds... has anyone used the dry container for the Vitamix? or do you just have the regular one?

I grind flax in a small coffee grinder, usually in several batches, and it stays very powdery/


I have both Vitamix containers..wet and dry.  Mmmm, you're making me wonder now about
whether I might have used the wet container instead of the dry one to try and grind almonds
into flour. Will have to get back to you on this question.

I too grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder.  I'm sure almonds could be ground this way as well..
just slow...

I have the dry container.  I still have the problem.  Maybe I'm putting too much or too little in at one time.  Maybe I should actually watch the DVD that came with it.

Hmmm... I'm sure I have a DVD somewhere..

I'd almost forgotten that I have the dry container. I should find some uses for it!

Quoted from Lola
a flawless recipe for your cottage cheese?

Lola,
I haven't followed this recipe and I tried to add it to recipebase - twice...  First time, I must have typed the SPAM test wrong, second when I previewed it, and returned, it was gone!


Small Curd Cottage Cheese

This cheese can be made in 16 to 36 hours.

1 gallon skim or whole milk
c. yogurt or c. cultured buttermilk

Pour milk into a very clean, large stainless steel or enameled pot.
Set pot on a rack inside a larger pot.
Fill outside pot with hot water.
Warm on stove over low heat until milk reached 85F.

Stir yogurt or buttermilk into milk with a wire whisk.
Cover with a towel.
Incubate milk, without disturbing it, at a temperature of 72 to 85F until milk becomes firm and yogurt-like.
When curd pulls away from side of pot, it is ready to set by heating.
You will see a clear liquid around edges of pot.
This will take 12 to 36 hours.
Temperature may vary during this time, but milk may not be jiggled.

It is now time to separate the whey, a clear liquid, from curds, which are white and made of coagulated proteins.
With a long, thin, stainless steel knife, cut curds into inch squares.
Next, hold knife at a 45-degree angle and slice diagonally through the lines already cut.
These cuts allow the whey to seep out of the curds and will aid even heating.

Place fresh hot water in the outside pot and place pot containing curds in it.
Over low heat, raise temperature of curds to 90F (check temperature near outside of pot).
At no time allow water in outside pot to exceed 170F.
Slowly stir curds from outside edges into center and bring curd from bottom to top, using a rubber spatula or large metal spoon.
Curds are still soft at this point and easily broken.
Continue to raise the temperature to 120F, stirring gently every 10 minutes.
Time to raise the curds from room temperature to 120F should be regulated to take about 45 minutes.

Hold curds at 120F until they feel firm, 10 to 20 minutes more.
When curds feel slightly springy but still a long way from being rubbery, they are ready to drain.
Whey will be clear with a golden tinge.
Rinse a cheesecloth and line a colander with it.
Gently ladle curds into colander.
Pour whey through curds.
Rinse gently with cool water.
If water drains too slowly, shift curds about in cheesecloth.
Rinse again to finish cooling the curds.
Tie ends of cheesecloth together and hang to drain for another 30 minutes.
Refrigerate.

Yield 4 cups.

I have it too. I guess Ribbit answered my question because I was going to try it. I put it away and I was going to dig it out..

Thanks for the recipe Joe.

yeah, paneer I already have pretty well mastered......
it really is very simple to do.
guess it is pretty much the easiest form.....

I had not realized that cottage cheese is a complicated product taking many different processes and waiting times.
I guess what I make is therefore not cottage cheese. But you could call it faux cottage cheese, as I made some lovely curds last night in about half an hour as follows.
Boiled up about a 1 litre of so of milk and stirred it a few minutes as it bubbled. Put it to the back of the stove to cool for about 15 minutes so that it was well under boiling point, but still fairly hot. Added the juice of one lemon, and watched it curdle,let it cool a bit and then let it drain in the usual way (cloth in strainer). This process of letting the milk cool a bit before adding the lemon seemed to allow the curds to develop better than adding it whilst boiling.
Anyway, it made a lovely hot dessert with maple syrup, and today will go into a salad, a pasta dish or scrambled eggs.

ps Isn't it amazing that just changing the milk protein into curds with the use of lemon or yoghurt is enough to make it acceptable to A type and certain genotype systems? After all, the milk protein is still there, even though physically and chemically tweaked.

Bull at a gate? My husband used to say "if in doubt, read the destructions", that's certainly me, I'm too excited to get the job done in a hurry.

That's fine...  Thanks!

I'm famous for getting into a project and finding I don't know how to continue and need to find an answer...  I try to evaluate projects to answer all these questions before starting, but it doesn't always happen.

So, could we conclude that "impatience" is the sign of a typical Warrior?

It's something I'm working on.   One of the things I think yoga, meditation helps.

I can be both very patient and impatient (though rarely at the same time). I almost always skim through instructions, whereas my mom almost refuses to on principle. That never ceases to amaze me because she rarely can figure anything out, especially when it comes to most things electronic. I don't think she's a warrior, though; probably a teacher (she won't take the time to find out...too many instructions! ).


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

DH refuses to read instructions.  He'll get something and put it together wrong and get mad and either put it away and never take it out again, or if he's in a good mood (what is it with Nomads and their moods?) he'll keep trying and trying and trying till he gets it together.  When we were first married and I didn't know any better, I'd suggest he read the instructions, or I'd ask him why he wouldn't read them when he got stuck and he explained that the point of putting it together wasn't necessarily for it to work; the point was the challenge of actually getting it together without having to read the instructions.

When I taught myself to sew I just sewed.  I didn't follow patterns because they confused me.  But I was determined to learn to follow a pattern, so I sat down with one, picked it apart and actually did it.  No, I didn't follow it perfectly because one of the steps didn't make any sense, so I did what I thought sounded better and it turned out fine.

But normally, when I buy something, like a new stroller (they don't make them to last through more than one kid), I do pull out the instructions and follow them.  I have found that while it hurts DH's pride to read instructions, it saves me a lot of time and frustration if I at least skim them.
